Safe voyage to ye, Cappie.

I have begun my WSP investigation. So far: part of a 91 show in Tuscaloosa with John Popper joining in and am, at this moment, enjoying 1996-04-21 Boalsburg, Penn.

This 96 show is really... enjoyable. I haven't been sitting with 'phones on and eyes closed; I've been working and it is in the background. It is a really nice groove. Then, all of a sudden, something will pull me in, e.g., Space Wrangler>Red Beans. SW I recognize as one of their "hits" but it's the "Red Beans" that I was really diggin'.

So far, the only similarities with the Dead that my untrained ears are picking up is that some songs segue into the next.


Your man on the street,
